Christmas in OK

We had a lovely Christmas back at home, but are also happy to be back in a routine after the holidays.

I always feel a bit sad post holiday season, but this year I am happy to get back to day to day.

On the day we arrived we went and stayed at my parents house. I showed hubby family albums and we ate a lot of cookies.

Day 2 was Christmas! Since everything was closed we were restless so we explored some of our old stomping grounds and reminisced about the past and the changes. We decided to grab lunch at IHOP (it was the only thing open)! Pancakes, omelettes, and burgers galore.

Day 3 we finally had the opportunity to hit up the gym and we headed to B’s parent’s house. Before that we had grabbed some treats from Trader Joe’s and had the fam meet us at Torchy’s for tacos.

Day 4 we went to the gym and hung out until dinner time. We checked out a mall and went to Ted’s. I guess we missed our Tex-Mex! Andy’s frozen custard was walking distance so we obviously had to check it out 😁😋

Day 5 included another gym session and eating leftover Ted’s post workout. It’s a commonly known fact that when you go to Ted’s you end up filling up on tortillas, chips, salsa and queso so you take home your entree and that is what happened. It made for a yummy meal! We got some donuts from Hurts donuts for dessert #health. We headed to my parent’s for the night and hung out for a bit before calling it a night!

On Sunday, we woke up dark and early at 4am to get to the airport the next day. We flew home with no bumps or delays and arrived home to run errands and get ready for the week of New Year’s and a busy work week! We had some Blaze pizza with high rise dough this time and cupcakes from our favorite place! We hit the hay quite early-we were pooped!

That, my friends, concludes our Christmas! I hope you all had a lovely holiday!!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas my sweet friends!!

It’s been a crazy last couple of weeks in our household and I can’t wait to share some of our adventures with you, but for now I am taking some time to enjoy with the ones I love and I hope you are all able to do the same!

Sending you all love and well wishes from our family to yours!

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Okay, we live in southern CA so it’s not exactly a white Christmas situation happening, but I have been living for and loving all the lights and festivities that this time of year brings!

I cannot believe that tomorrow is Christmas and I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone by! I feel like we were just in January and now it’s almost the end of the holiday season and the beginning of another year…what the heck?!

I’m working the next couple of days, but I love my job and I knew when I started down this path I would miss some weekends and holidays. It honestly does make the moments I have together with friends and family all the sweeter 🙂

I hope you are all having a lovely holiday season and will be celebrating with the people that mean the most to you!

Just out of curiosity, which holiday is your favorite?
